The Heart of Psychotherapy

- Early Adulthood
- Pregnancy & Postpartum

- Career/Professional Transition
- Healthy Lifestyle Transition
- Meditation and Mindfulness Coaching
Seeking help when you are suffering takes a great deal of courage. For some, the decision to seek psychotherapy is prompted by the need to address specific issues such as depression or anxiety. Some are motivated by work or personal concerns. Others feel their lives are not progressing as they would like and enter treatment in order to feel more satisfied and fulfilled.
What to Expect
Psychotherapy can be very useful in coping with difficult life situations. Many clients report deeper satisfaction and fulfillment after engaging in meaningful psychotherapy.
Growth and Change
Therapy can be both a rewarding and challenging process. Naturally, clients begin by discussing what is not working, but it is also crucial to discuss what is working. Everyone has areas of strength we will draw on to increase coping skills, reduce distress, improve relationships and move toward a more positive outlook. Psychotherapy is a process to facilitate personal growth and change while allowing for the discovery of more effective methods for coping with difficult feelings and experiences.
